Hannibal Regional Medical Group is now offering patients the new Medtronic AdaptiveStim™ with RestoreSensor™ neurostimulation system, the first and only chronic pain treatment that leverages motion sensor technology found in many consumer electronics, such as smart phones and computer gaming systems, to provide effective pain relief and convenience to patients suffering from chronic back and/or leg pain.

AdaptiveStim with RestoreSensor helps treat the symptoms of chronic back and/or leg pain by automatically recognizing and remembering the correlation between a change in body position and the level of stimulation needed. It also records and stores the frequency of posture changes, providing feedback to clinicians to help them understand how a patient’s individual stimulation requirements are changing over time. 

Neurostimulation systems consist of an implantable medical device similar to a pacemaker that is used with a handheld patient programmer to interrupt pain signals from reaching the brain. The treatment has become a mainstay of chronic pain management; however, a person’s change in body position and physical activity can result in the wrong amount of stimulation, creating understimulation and overstimulation. As a result, patients may need to make frequent manual adjustments using a handheld patient programmer. AdaptiveStim with RestoreSensor provides a solution by recognizing and automatically adjusting stimulation as a patient continuously changes position, providing effective pain relief and convenience.  

“For many patients with chronic pain, convenient is hardly a word that often comes to mind,” said Luvell Glanton, Jr., MD, Pain Management Specialist with Hannibal Regional Medical Group,  one of the first medical centers in the nation to offer the new therapy.  “AdaptiveStim with RestoreSensor uses breakthrough technology to offer comfort and convenience to the many patients who previously had to adjust neurostimulation system settings using a patient programmer. This new offering gives these chronic pain patients an important new option to help manage their pain symptoms and enable the return to their normal activities.”
